    You have a really cool "stripe" effect happening on the walls!

    Thanks. It's called leading lines: that's where the lines ultimately lead to your subject. i.e. winding road with a house/tree/person/etc. at the end.

    This gives me some ideas for when we start working on themes!

    ETA: I think I was too close to the subject as well. I need to come back and then zoom and hopefully gain more dimension...unno agree?

    It's great to have feedback so you know what to look for and change the next time you attempt something.

    Those who posted their pictures... It's nice to study what others do to learn since I am pretty new to this.
    I don't think so, the shot works for me. But all the same, try and shoot again and see what happens.

    You mean that for the 2nd picture where it fruit looks plastic? Thinking out loud how to minimize the flat look which is common when photographing food

    I'm so sorry, for some reason the first shot was in my head when I responded.

    I'm not at all familiar with food photog, but try backing up like you said and zoom. Double check to see if your lens is set to AF mode (auto focus). If it's in auto mode, then the lens will be struggling to try and focus if you're too close. In manual focus, you are in complete control.

    Also if you have IS (image stabilization) on your lens, turn it off when you're shooting with your tripod. This can create camera shake, and cause photos to blur.


    So in short: When shooting with your tripod...


    -Turn off auto focus
    - Turn off image stabalization

    Nice shot IG. But try lowering your ISO, if you notice your photo has a reddish hue/tint to it. Not sure if that's what you wanted to achieve. But next time, shoot a couple with a lower ISO and compare.

    Question: Are the photos being posted before anyone edits them in photoshop/lightroom, etc.? Just checking to see if we are looking at photos "apple to apples".

    I am not using any editing software right now because I want to understand light and the settings on my camera better.
